I totally agree with uping the overtime. We are one of the most overworked countries in the world. But I would go further and make it mandantory for overtime for all over 40 hours per week. I have seen to many Engineers, Accontants etc. expected to work 70 hour weeks for a salary that does not compare. Many think that they will get a bone-us. It always seems to be a bad quarter. The ultimate greed is a CEO making millions and not paying overtime to all. If they had to hire more to cover the non overtime worked unemployment would plummit. Countries like Sweden have a maximum of a 36 hour week. It works.

It amazes me how a subject like this will generate no debate and a post about guns will generate endless emotional debate.

TY Legend, I really do belive that income equality meaning also opportunity equality would go a hell of a long way to solving many of our society's ills.

TH replayed TedRosevelt today, and the part about an income "that would permit people to live morally" really stood out. I really do believe that if everyone reguardless of what subset demographic population he/she belonged to had access to true and fair opportunity and income/wealth, we'd ALL be better off.

Duh, right?

Who Will Stop World War III?

Thom plus logo Back in 2001, after 9/11, Congress gave the president the authority to basically wage war anywhere in the world where there were governments affiliated with Al Qaeda, the radical Sunni Muslim group that came out of the Saudi Wahhabist movement. Iran is Shia Muslim, essentially the sworn enemies of the Sunnis.
